Im responding in this form to hopefully have a higher chance of it being seen, i changed my password and then when i went to log in with the new one it didn't work. so i went back to the site to start over with an email confirmation only to find out that the only way to change/fix a lost password is to start at step 1 with the current password... and answer me this genius brains at riot, how can one complete the task of entering there current password when they have no idea what it is... im typing in the password i set, i saved the dang thing in my google docs... yet its still saying mine is wrong, plz fix this soon.

I hope you were using variable salts for the hashes. I'm disappointed in the recent breaches of security all around.

Account thieves are very good at guessing passwords because most people tend to use the same password for multiple websites and use a predictable word and letter combinations (i.e. password1 or sunshine5). This means your account information can be stolen on one website, but then potentially used on another. For this reason, the password strength meter detects if a password is 'instantly crackable' by checking if you are using a word from a list which hackers have used in the past to steal other accounts. If a word in your password appears in this list, then it drastically reduces the strength. Strong passwords are unique to the person using them, but hard for someone else (or a machine) to guess.

Example of a weak password:
sunshine1989

Example of a strong password:
correcthorsebatterystaple5
That you give this away is actually a security weakness. This means your tool can now be used for hacking.
